Here's a photo of the prominent southern craters Tycho, Maginus, and Clavius that I took with the 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain at the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's Naylor Observatory and a Pentax K1000 SLR camera using eyepiece projection. These three craters are 85, 194, and 225 kilometers in diameter respectively.  Maginus lies between and to the left of Tycho (center) and Clavius.
